PlaintiffDAVID BURNHAM
Case DescriptionSusan Long and David Burnham, co-directors of the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, submitted monthly FOIA requests to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for anonymous case-by-case information about individuals deported by ICE as a result of its Secure Communities or successor programs. In its most recent response to TRAC's monthly request, the agency failed to provide a number of data fields that it had disclosed previously. TRAC filed an administrative appeal of the agency's response. ICE responded to the appeal by telling TRAC that the agency database did not contain that information and it was not required to provide it. TRAC then filed suit.
